. . . THAT done . . .
They were in their basement. Storing tools at some point. But basement was damp’ish and dressers got a tad moldy. Took them to strippers.
Did you know that stripping chemicals can kill mold as well as bad smells?
Now remedied of those two problems, it was decision time. Do I spend more time and money on REfinishing them, leave them raw (someone else can do what THEY want) OR paint them?
I opted to deal with THE TOPS.
The smaller dresser~ stained and waxed top, painted body with raw wood and waxed face frame. Reproduction hardware.
The larger dresser~ stained and waxed top, the rest- just left raw and reinstalled original mismatched hardware.
And– REproduction wood wheels for both.
